Posted on May 5, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The second no-hitter of the 2018 MLB season was a real group effort. Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler started Friday’s game against the San Diego Padres, tossing six hitless innings. He was then pulled, with Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia, and Adam Liberatore each throwing a hitless […]

Posted on March 14, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The San Diego Padres are in the midst of a long rebuilding process. However, the Padres made some moves over the winter aimed at competing sooner rather than later. Can they surprise people in a competitive NL West or will 2018 be another long year for the […]

Posted on February 18, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After a long, drawn-out free agent process, Eric Hosmer has finally made up his mind. Late Saturday night, reports surfaced that Hosmer has agreed to sign with the San Diego Padres. The deal is reportedly worth $144 million over eight years. It will be the largest contract […]

Posted on February 8, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Everyone seems to be chiming in on baseball’s slow free agent market. In recent days, a war of words has developed between Major League Baseball and its players. Last week, agent Brodie Van Wagenen got things started with a suggestion of collusion among the 30 owners. Earlier […]

Posted on February 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine It seems hard to believe, but the start of spring training is less than two weeks ago. It’s hard to believe in large part because so many of the top free agents remain unsigned. There are a lot of theories as to why the market has been […]

Posted on February 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine A slow free agent marke this offseason has not sat well with MLB players, even the ones under contract. Prominent agent Brodie Van Wagenen spoke out on the issue Friday in an open letter he posted via Twitter. In the letter, Van Wagenen says that this year’s stagnant […]

Posted on January 30, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine In a trade completed Monday night, the Oakland A’s have acquired first baseman Brandon Moss and pitcher Ryan Buchter from the Kansas City Royals. In exchange, the Royals have received pitchers Jesse Hahn and Heath Fillmyer. The Royals are also sending $3.25 million to Oakland to help cover […]

Posted on January 9, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine As we all know, the MLB hot stove has been painstakingly slow to develop this winter. One of the players who has received far less attention than expected has been third baseman Mike Moustakas. Despite entering the offseason as one of the top hitters on the market, […]

Posted on December 6, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The San Diego Padres are one of the last teams you’d expect to sign one of the top free agents on the open market this winter. But that may be about to change. Not only are the Padres one of seven finalist for Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani, […]

Posted on November 29, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The fire sale the Chicago White Sox started last winter is far from over. There are still a few veterans on Chicago’s roster that GM Rick Hahn is likely to move this offseason. Next on the trade block appears to be Jose Abreu. Recent reports indicate that the […]

Posted on November 19, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Much of the baseball offseason thus far has revolved around the Marlins possibly trading Giancarlo Stanton. There has also been a good amount of focus on J.D. Martinez. However, one of the other free agents who figures to land a lucrative contract is Cleveland Indians first baseman […]

Posted on November 17, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine After a rare down season in 2017, the San Francisco Giants are determined to turn things around in 2018. Based on everything coming out of San Francisco early in the offseason, there will be no rebuilding for the Giants. The club appears poised to make the biggest […]

Posted on November 14, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine This offseason is nothing if not a crossroads for the Kansas City Royals. Several of their most important players are free agents this winter, most notably Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, and Lorenzo Cain. All three have been made qualifying offers, and all three are expected to decline […]

Posted on November 11, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Los Angeles Angels have a long way to go to catch up in a division that includes the world champion Houston Astros.
